Tomoyuki Sugano recorded his third straight double-digit strikeout game on May 13 (12, 10, 10) and became the fourth player in franchise history to accomplish the feat. The other three: Kazumi Takahashi in 1972, Hiromi Makihara in 1986, and Hiroshi Kisanuki in 2003.
Atsushi Nomi set the Central League record for consecutive double-digit strikeout games with five in 2014. Hideo Nomo holds the NPB record with six in 1991.
